Customer: Hi my name is***** would like to ask a questions about quickclaim deed‘s. And what I’m trying to do is create a document that my wife can sign giving me my house 100% and her not having any interest in it whatsoever. The house was mine and purchased by me before our marriage. And I would like to create a document and in this document I would like it to say that we are now have a legal separation, and that she does not hold any interest in my house whatsoever. And I’m not sure how to do this or what it should say.
One reason I wanna do this is because last year she came over to the house we’ve been separated and haven’t lived together since December 6 of 2020. But she came over to the house and called the police trying to get me arrested and once I was taken away she was going to get a restraining order on me and try to seize the house. And I want to make sure that doesn’t happen again. Because she probably will be back in the house for a couple of days before she goes off to a drug rehabilitation treatment facility. And I just need to protect my house from her. And it all to be legal. So I want to create this document and then I guess I need to get notarized have her sign in front of a notary at a bank I guess is the way it’s done. But if you could help me on this I’d be very appreciative to you thank you. And I want to do everything over text messaging I don’t want to talk on the phone. My email address is ***@******.*** Thank you so much for your time today.

Hi! My name is Richard & I will be helping you today! It will take me a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!

Richard, Expert

Good morning.  Have her sign a quit claim deed as grantor transferring any interest she owns to you, as grantee.  The deed needs to be witnessed, notarized, and then recorded in the real property records of the city/county in which the property is located. I have attached a template for a quit claim deed which can be easily completed with the applicable information. If you have any questions, however, in completing it, just let me know.

Customer
Is it OK just to put the mailing address the street address or do I have to get legal as far as the lot size and the square footage of the home and all of that? And will this protect me if she tries to seize the house from me by having me arrested saying some bogus thing like that like she tried to last time. And can I add into this document that we have a legal separation how is that done? So I’m not responsible for any of her death that she incurs and vice versa. And am I covered with that as soon as it is notarized even though it would be recorded yet
Customer
No I’d prefer continuing with the text messaging please

You'll need to get the exact legal description.  It will be on the existing deed which you can get in the county's real property records or, if you have a mortgage, it will be on that document as well.  The quit claim deed will give up all her interest in the property.

Customer
Can I add to this quick claim deed as far as I want us to have a legal separation, she’s committed adultery, and she’s a drug attic. And I’m gonna help her get into of a rehab for women. And while she’s in this rehab I will probably be selling the house and moving to a different state to Texas I want to make sure that she can’t come after me that’s why I wanna do the quick claim deed. And then once I’m settled in Texas then I’ll file for divorce when she gets out of rehab. Now can she come back to me and say that she was not in the right frame of mind because of her getting ready to go into a rehab in this quick claim deed be Nolan void

Richard, Expert

It will not help you to add all that to the deed.  It is simply a red flag that you think she might not be competent.

Customer
Ok

Richard, Expert

I wish you the best.  It's been my honor and privilege to assist you this morning.

Customer
is this quick claim deed just basically one page? And where where do I file it again and I’m protected as soon as I get it notarized is that correct
img

Richard, Expert

You will be protected once it is recorded.  You record it in the real property records of the county in which the property is located.

Customer
